Instead of being a standalone pokie, Mr Cashman is a concept used across several different games.
Mr Cashman is a friendly-looking character. He has a face made of a gold coin and wears a top hat. He has been seen in and around Aristocrat designed pokies for several years. There are now 4 dedicated Mr Cashman games to enjoy: Jailbird, Magic Eyes, Jewel of the Enchantress and African Dusk. Each of the four games has its own design and symbols, with shared gameplay and of course, the Mr Cashman character.
Each of the games features 20 win-lines and gives you the chance to play for the stakes you want to. Choose your own coin-value and get spinning.
In total there are five bonus games that appear in each of the four games. This range of bonus games ensures that no sessions are ever the same. They include a pokie within a pokie, free spins, random cash prizes and a prize-match bonus.
Free play or ‘fun’ versions of games can be useful when trying a new pokie for the first time. You’ll get to learn how the games work quickly and gain a feel for the bonus rounds. Many of the online Aristocrat slots feature a free play version, although not being online, Mr Cashman doesn’t. With just 20 win-lines however, you can keep the coin value low, ensuring you can learn the game at small stakes.
Your first choice when playing these Cashman pokies is to opt for which of the four themes you want to play. Each of the themes has a very different feel. For example, African Dusk takes you out to the African safari and focuses on the animals there. Jewel of the Enchantress has a very different, magical and almost fairy-tale feel.
Each of the four games has 20 win-lines and you’ll have to choose the coin value that suits your bankroll. While the symbols change from game to game, all feature wilds and their own range of bonus symbols. You’ll win when landing three matching symbols on a win-line from left to right. The biggest wins come from the maximum five in a row wins and the different bonus games.
Whichever theme you play, the symbols relating to that theme are the highest paying in the game. The low end of the paytables all list the standard Aristocrat playing card symbols.
Within each of the four games, there are five different bonus games available. Here is a walkthrough each of these bonuses:
Mr Cashman will walk across the reels and give randomly chosen reels an additional spin. He might pick just one reel or spin all five. After spinning those reels, you’ll be looking at a win, one way or the other. At the very end of the feature, he’ll throw a multiplier into the mix. This multiplier (3x, 5x or 10x) will be applied to the total win.
This is an entertaining visual game where Mr Cashman stands in front of a three-reel pokie. On each of the reels are numbers between 0 and 9. Whichever three-digit display appears at the end of the feature is the amount you have won. For example, if the three reels displayed 7-2-4, you’d win 724 coins. The maximum win possible is therefore 999 coins.
Activating this feature sees you enter the most straightforward bonus, but also the bonus with the biggest potential wins.
Mr Cashman will appear and walk out on to the screen, waving his hands towards the win meter at the top of the screen. As long he continues to wave, the higher the win amount will be. The maximum win amount in this feature is an incredible 250,000 coins. The prize is randomly determined.
In this game, you are presented a choice. Mr Cashman stands in front of a curtain. In one hand he holds a gift box and in the other a money bag. Choose the money bag and you win a random amount up to 1,000 coins. Choose the gift box and you’ll enter a free spins bonus round. You’ll win 5, 10, 15 or 20 free spins, with a multiplier of 2x, 3x or 5x.
You’ll find Mr Cashman on a screen showing the moon and stars. Now you’ll have to pick the stars until you find two matching prizes. These prizes can contain a credit amount of up to 1,000 coins. Alternatively, you could also win a free spins feature: 40 free spins with a 1x multiplier, 20 free spins with a 2x multiplier, 10 free spins with a 3x multiplier and 5 free spins with a 5x multiplier. Looking at these numbers, the 40 or 20 free spins seem the best options.
No, there is no progressive jackpot available at Mr Cashman. However, the maximum win of 250,000 coins is certainly in jackpot territory. You can win this amount during the random prize bonus game.
Yes, there are two ways to enter a free spins bonus game. The first is by choosing the ‘gift’ option in the ‘Choose Your Feature’ bonus game. This first method will see you awarded a random number of spins and a random multiplier. The second way you’ll enter a free spins feature is if you make the right picks in the ‘Match the Prize’ bonus feature. In this feature, you could win up to 40 free spins.
No, being a live casino pokie, there is no free play option. However, with just 20 win-lines in play, you do have the option of setting a low coin value, to keep the stake down in your early spins. The Mr Cashman character has appeared in many classic pokies over the years before he got his own dedicated games.
